Where The Book Came From:

First Sentence:

Cover Blurb: [from] The highway from Los Angeles to the Palm Springs desert is parched, unforgiving, and deadly. In the suffocating stillness of a car trunk, a man, his mouth and hands bound with duct tape, awaits his fate. What possible enemy could be bitter enough to commit such a heinous crime? And when will the monster make another move?
Ali Reynolds is traveling that same blistering, lonesome highway, looking forward to putting her past behind her. But her cheating husband is in a hurry for a divorce, and the television network that wrongfully dismissed her for the sole sin of being over 40 will face her in court as well.

As she passes the site of a horrifying accident, Ali is grateful that it's no longer her job to report the news, until she finds out that the news is her own: the victim is Ali's cheating husband. And soon she'll find herself the prime suspect at the center of a terrifying web of evil.

A twisted and lethal drama of heart-pounding suspense, Web of Evil asks the question: If hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, just what punishment could that fury unleash?

Reason For Reading: I read it for the RBL SUmmer Mystery Challenge and because I had heard a lot about the author.

Comments: It's been a while since I listened to the book, and I don't remember any problems I had, I only remember the amazing plot. I loved listening to it and wished there was more available.

I was sucked in and had troubles pressing pause because I had to go to class and I was sorry when I came close to the end because I didn't want the plot to stop. In a way, Ali, her family and friends became good friends while reading it. I didn't want to be afraid for them when they were in danger.

The twists in this "novel of suspense" (that's the subtitle, which I didn't add above) were awesome and I believe Miss Jance is an awesome writer whom I'm lucky to have discovered.

I already have another of her books on my list for future acquirements, and it won't take me long, I's say!

Favorite Part: When all of a sudden Ali's entire family appears in L.A. to help Ali. I love families that stick together no matter what!

Rating: A-
